.s.a. a super pac. we all know, are pretty familiar with the super pac law in that there should be no coordination between a campaign and super pac and here you have a major co chair going over to the other side without anyone sort of raising an eyebrow and then once he gets there, he makes all these phone calls and raises a bunch of money. i was never able to confirm how much he raised. i think that number we gave in the question was overblown, but that's what i thought at the time. and, you know, so he starts, so this is also a very sensitive subject. certainly, you know, you have obviously, he is very sensitive about clearly did not approve of president obama's decision to relieve stanley mcchrystal. >> i love the way you handled that, you know, exchange with him, because he is obviously very hostile toward you. even after that exchange, you keep pressing him to answer the question. let's go to the next video where you don't seem annoyed by him at all and you continued to ask him to answer your question: >> cenk: michael. >> he had just said that in the ballroom as a joke, i

, there are federal background checks already, so he may expand that law. host: take a look at what the washington post says president obama is expected to say later this morning. background checks for all firearms buyers, as did the assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. some of those or most of those would have to be done through congress. but perhaps he does some other enhance the database and other things by executive order. caller: defining who is crazy and who is not or maybe someone is distressed because they lost their job, it is going to be very difficult to define mental health. how do they get access to those records. is it a federal? that is the thing. people will say, is my doctor or psychiatrist spying on me? there may be less people going to see a therapist or a psychiatrist because they are afraid they will spy on them and report information back to the federal government. host: let's go back to what you said at the beginning when you talk about the politics of this. this headline -- that was in reference to what harry reid had said. some democrats backing down from an
such great pride in the rule of law to have someone come to grips with the place of guns and violence. before we begin this discussioncomes out to you on personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, as in denver colorado on personal business and i was driving to the denver suburbs and i passed into oruro, colorado and saw the sign that to myself, as journalists often do, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago and a young man now appears to be utterly deranged, went to the theater and began shooting people with an assault weapon. and it went away. it is not part of a presidential debate, not part of the daily journalistic diet. so that wednesday night, i e-mailed the reduced their of the "meet the press" show coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we've been through oruro, the sikh temple, the shopping mall. think about this. this is before we got to sandy hook in it. we had a time of absolute carnage in america t
barack obama has urged congress to pass gun control laws the move follows last month fatal shooting of 26 people in connecticut. >> this time must be different. this time we must do something to protect our communities and our kids. >> obama wants is federal government to provide background information on potential gun buyers. the proposals would provide financial assistance to help schools beef up security. these measures are within the frame work of existing legislate. obama said new laws are also needed to effectively addre gun crime. he proposed a ban on military style assault weapons. he also called on congress to legislate for mandatory background checks on all gun buyers. analysts say such legislation is likely to be difficult. opponents claim gun ownership is a right guaranteed in the u.s. constitution. >>> americans are building more homes and bankers couldn't be happier. what's the connection here? >> when people buy homes they take out mortgage loans. the ones who profit from the loans are the banks. why are they happy? u.s. leading firms saw profits soar in 2012. jpmorgan chas
, megan's law and the man who tortured and killed her, his parents tried to get help for him and they couldn't. and a lot of this goes back to the 1980's, when we looked at rights for the mentally ill and i believe they should have rights to refuse treatment, but if you suffer from an illness -- i'll give you example, most of the mentally ills do not pose a hazard to people but certain elements do. and you cannot make these people take their medication and then we shut down the institutions and put people out in the street for community care. and these are the types of people that when they get into delusions, they are not going to come in and seek that care. so you have problems. you also have problems -- the school shooting in newtown is terrible, but i would like to know what went on in that home. what went on with mr. lanza and his mother? there's not enough information out there yet. and we're going off proposing this ban and that ban and whatever, all i see is that mental illness and care for the mentally ill seems to be getting short changed. the other point i'm concer
to creating pro-growth tax law that will enable american companies to compete effectively against companies that are domicile in other countries around the world we need a level playing field. the united states has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. also the united states is one of the few countries in the world with a system that is called a global tax system rather than a territorial tax system. the 113th congress we are going to continue to advocate for comprehensive tax reform that broadens the base that reduces corporate tax rates and moves through a competitive territorial system. proctor and gamble pays income taxes and over 100 countries around the world. a business tax reform should provide a level playing field so that each business has the confidence of knowing it pays roughly the same amount of income tax as its competitors in markets with at home and abroad. in terms of deficit reduction, the obvious problem that must be addressed is the problem that currently the united states has been spending at a rate that far exceeds the rate of revenue that we are receiving. the
